This fabulous Pinot Noir comes from one of California's greatest sub-appellations. The Sonoma Coast AVA is known for its unique soil composition and intense temperature changes – a perfect terroir to grow Pinot Noir. This wine comes from vineyard plots nestled in near Fort Ross Seaview (one of the "Grand Cru" of California). But enough wine geek speak...

This wine has inviting aromas of toast, herbs, cranberries, blueberries, and black plums. The palate is concentrated and intense, with bright fruit, fresh acidity, and a very long finish. UG Staff consensus: this is an EXCELLENT Pinot!
